2nd Season at KU
Laura Jackson joined the Kansas soccer staff in June of 2019. She brings a wealth of both coaching and playing experience after she spent the last two seasons on the Florida Atlantic coaching staff, while also attaining All-League status twice during her three seasons on the pitch (2010-12) at Iona.
The Jayhawk program reached new heights in her first season on the KU bench. Kansas posted a 17-5-3 record, claimed the program’s first Big 12 Tournament title and reached the NCAA Tournament round of 16 for just the second time in school history.
Prior to coming to Kansas, Jackson spent two highly successful years as an assistant coach for Florida Atlantic. She helped lead the Owls to a pair of impressive seasons that saw FAU reach the Conference USA tournament semifinals in both 2017 and 2018 as well as the C-USA regular-season title last season, the program’s first league championship since 2005.
